Bio and Links
Bio Photo In appreciation for what others have done and all the hard work that happens here I will try to put back as much as I have received. I will try to add names and pictures from my own area. If you find one of your relatives that I have entered and the information is incorrect or you do not want it on this site, please contact me and we will correct or remove as quickly as possible. You also have my permission to use any of the pictures I have put on this site for your own personal family use. No need to ask. If you want a family member's memorial transferred to you, just ask.

If I am able to fulfill requests for names, photos or other additional information, please feel free to request.

Happy hunting to everyone of you who are out there searching and trying to fill in all the open spaces in family history. And, thank you to all the hard working volunteers that make this site so great.

There are 2 memorials for my loved one #47124685 and #61078628
and 2 different cemetery names used. Could you please coordinate with the other person who created a duplicate and figure out which cemetery is correct?

I would like to update info and link family, but want to wait until I know for sure which cemetery is correct.

Thank you.

Correction on previous post
I posted the wrong memorial # - 19654119 is Anna's husband. Anna's other memorial I was referencing is #19657720. Thanks.

Incorrect Photos
The grave photos attached to #20330748 do not belong with this person. Also #19654119 is the same person as #20330748 and need to be merged. (The grave pictures on #19654119 are correct). Thank you.

William Brown Musser
Shirley, thank you for your updating.

3 suggested changes:
1)Child "5 went by the name of Patrick S Musser vs. Paltry in later life.
2) Child #6 name of Margaret K "Maggie" Musser
3) And lastly add the name of Abbott after #4
child in this sentence - I haven't found yet were Nettie Sarrah (Musser) Abbott is buried, but I think she is in the same vicinity as her oldest brother Lee Henry Musser, if not the same cemetery in southwest South Dakota.

I have made these corrections in the body below to make it easy for you.

I have found six children :

Lee Henry Musser July 02, 1895
Bessie Musser December 1898
Taylor John Musser November 04, 1899
Nettie Sarrah Musser August 20, 1902
Patrick S Musser 1905
Margaret K "Maggie" Musser 1907

#4 child Nettie Sarrah Musser married James Alfred Abbott on November 20, 1920 after his first wife died named, Ethel Margaret (Huddle) Abbott, on March 20, 1920. Both James and Ethel are buried at Emerick Cemetery, Madison County, NE. I have not found yet were Nettie Sarrah (Musser) Abbott is buried, but I think she is in the same vicinity as her oldest brother Lee Henry Musser, if not the same cemetery in southwest South Dakota.

#5 Patrick S Musser had 3 sons with wife, Alma Filsinger
William Patrick Musser 1925-1991
Dean Virgil Musser 1926-1998
Lilond/Leland Musser 1933-Unknown
